Mental capacity law develops constantly. Since Cheshire West hit the news, those engaged in this field have been deluged with court decisions, rules and guidance on deprivation of liberty.

Decisions about best interests continue to require specialist knowledge, crossing over the boundaries between medical and legal practice.

The MHLA has prepared a programme of topical issues including deprivation of liberty, the new CoP rules and the psychological perspective of best interests assessments.  Join us for a stimulating day of debate.
